[all images courtesy of sangiorgio mykonos design hotel] typically i am not a island-vacation person… but i will be perfectly happy if this is where i am gonna spend my weekend (or summer). …. aha, yeah, i wish.
as a manhattan frequent visitor, it is hard to believe that i’ve never been to Brooklyn… never. ‘no way!’ … i know, right? it is only three stops from 14 street/union square on L line! and then of course you can keep going, all the way to rockaway. finally, after years and years, there is a reason to visit and stay in brooklyn, thanks to the opening of wythe hotel.
[all images courtesy WAA|photography by jan bitter and joao morgado] found this project while browsing WAA’s portfolio… what a beautiful renovation within the historical context! near the river maas in maastricht, the netherlands, Hotel Zenden originally was just a building contained only one pool for swimming lessons in late 60s. over the years the programs have expanded include hotel rooms, a swimming club and a judo school.
if you are looking for a nice hotel in manhattan to stay during your visit , add hotel americano to your radar. designed by TEN arquitectos, hotel americano is the latest addition to design hotels in NYC. ( they just opened last summer!) it is absolutely the best hotel we’ve ever stayed in manhattan (we still heart ace hotel but sorry hudson hotel…). the interior details were done sophisticatedly, it is almost too perfect to find something we don’t like about this […]
[all images courtesy ruschmeyer’s] today i am thinking about Ruschmeyer’s in montauk, where we couldn’t find available rooms during last late summer… but they’re open again soon!! hopefully we will be able to find a weekdays(not weekend) getaway this summer!
[all images courtesy la feline blanche] really not much to say but “I WANT TO STAY HEEEERE!” hotel la deline blanche totally meets(exceeds) my criteria of hotel-hunting: the interior style is simple, chic, boutique, and the price is affordable. however, it’s located near mont-blanc(!) not paris. well, a amazing place to stay, but not my destination this time.
we had a uber fun time in nyc this past weekend: it was dusting snow when we arrived (romantic!), stayed at ace hotel, strolled around in soho and l.e.s.,visited eatly(!!finally),phaidon had a HUGE sale, stopped by DWR…etcetc. well, too many to share at once!
